Abstract

The recent advances in genetic tools to manipulate Mycobacterium tuberculosis have led to the construction of defined mutants and to the study of their role in the virulence and pathogenesis of tuberculosis. The safety and vaccine potential of a few of these M. tuberculosis mutants as candidate vaccines against tuberculosis are discussed.
